Please be advised that Claremont Pool will not open until 7am on Wednesday 26th January (Australia Day) and as such I am proposing that as many of us as possible have a little dabble in the 2.0km swim down at Scarborough Beach. You can enter that here: http://www.carinemastersswimming.org.au/australiadayswim.html - looks like a blast!
There will also be no swimming at 9.30am at Claremont Pool for the Time-4-Me session either due to the Public Holiday and (fingers crossed) as I'm hopefully receiving my Australian Citizenship on this day (TBC!). But please, if there's only one open water swim that we all do together, let's try to make it this one - I'll arrange a special warm-up stretch for us all down by the registration area on the beach at 7.20am prior to the briefing at 7.45am and 8am start.
Rottnest Solo swimmers, don't forget that the Rottnest Rehearsal swim needs entering before this coming Monday - newbies must race at this 10km event on Sunday 30th January as a qualifier for the actual Rottnest Channel Swim. Enter that here: http://www.openwaterswimming.com.au/default.asp?PageID=20635
Have a great weekend!
P.S Very quick reminder and apologies about the super-busy lanes this morning (Friday 21st January) - please let me know via email or text if you wish to swim in these sessions if your name is not down on the official list here: http://www.swimsmooth.com/pauls_images/Squad_2010_2011.pdf - if you think it should be and it's not down, please let me know to help me amend the records and help keep the sessions running smoothly at this busy time of year. Your support and understanding this morning was much appreciated and I hope you all enjoyed the tough little cookie of a session!
